Fortunately despite both Run Directors arriving late at the Stray with the help of all of our amazing volunteers we managed to get everything ready in time for 9am.
Being the closest parkrunday to Halloween it was inevitable that we would have a smattering of Ghosts and Ghouls amongst the 418 of you who ran walked or jogged around the stray.
It really is fabulous to be able to watch so many people out enjoying their Saturday mornings, from the slowest to the fastest and everyone I between.
So huge thanks to Louisa and Colin for the photos,
Have a marvellous week,
See you on Saturday for some bonfire dodging.
Just a few reminders....
Post run refreshments - Join us at Caffe Marconi (2 Princes Square) each week after parkrun to catch up, process the results, have a coffee and a good old chat. The food and drinks are great and Sarah and her team are huge fans of parkrun! It's good fun and you can even get your result early!
In Case of Emergency - Please double check that your emergency contact details are complete and up to date on your parkrun profile. You'll find a link to your profile on your weekly results email and newsletters or via this How can I access my profile / account? link. It only takes a few moments, put could really help us to help you if and when you most need it.
Barcodes - Is your printed barcode looking tired or not scanning easily? There are a range of tough and durable plastic parkrun barcode ID tags and parkrun wristbands available via http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/ These are the only UK authorised and professionally printed tags and feature the parkrun branding and logo, your athlete details and can also be personalised with your ICE (In Case of Emergency) telephone number and additional information including specific medical details. They come in a range of options and can be attached to a key ring, laces, and running vest zip or worn on a lanyard.
Volunteering - We do ask that each of you, if possible, volunteer 3 times over the year. It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday. Harrogate is no exception and without your kindness we would not be able to put on this wonderful free event. If you would like to help out please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harrogate/volunteer/ for more information or talk to anyone in a yellow vest on parkrun day and then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. If you still want to run don't let that put you off we have lots of jobs where you can still run !
